There's no reason to hate @multitable, IMHO, it's just that the GDB
manual abuses it: it tries to squeeze too much information into a
table, and the table items have too many @code markup in them, so TeX
cannot break the lines in a useful way. Unfortunately, I don't know
enough about the related subject matter (the remote protocol) to
rewrite that table.
